Killer iPhone 6 deal brings the oldie down to $70 with 90-day warranty

Killer iPhone 6 deal brings the oldie down to $70 with 90-day warranty
Apple’s iPhone 6 is... quite old, having seen daylight all the way back in 2014 with a design that must feel terribly outdated nowadays for folks keeping up with modern industry trends, as well as a tiny 4.7-inch screen that’s on the brink of extinction, and a measly 1GB RAM.

But at the right price, this could still be a smart buy for a first-time iOS user or someone searching a dirt-cheap backup device that can deliver the basics. $69.99 sounds crazy affordable for any smartphone capable of switching on, not to mention one running the latest version of Apple’s popular mobile operating system.

Yup, the iOS 12-upgradable iPhone 6 is currently available for around 15 percent of the entry-level list price of a brand-new iPhone 7. Of course, that’s not an entirely fair comparison, as Walmart sells the 2014-released 4.7-incher at 70 bucks in refurbished condition and for Straight Talk use only.

On the bright side, the refurb units on sale right now are covered by decent 90-day warranties, and Straight Talk is a pretty great Mobile Virtual Network Operator, aggregating 4G LTE coverage from all big four US carriers.

The no-contract operator has unlimited plans starting as low as $35 a month, also making the device activation process a breeze from the comfort of the user’s own home.

Back to the iPhone 6, it’s perhaps needless to mention Apple no longer sells this oldie either as a refurb or brand-new. Meanwhile, Walmart handily beats current deals offered by the likes of Amazon, which start at much higher prices in similar carrier-locked conditions. By the way, Walmart also charges a very reasonable $99 for a new Straight Talk prepaid iPhone 6 variant.

I rather pay the 100 for a new phone then 70 for a refurbished one. But that’s just me.

It's 5 years old now, and to top it off it only has 1 GB of RAM. With the latest iOS, it sucks. It's not worth it. Save your money and buy something else.

Stop lying, please. Unlike you, I DO have an iPhone 6 and it's just fine with iOS 12.03. For $70 it's a killer deal!

The word refurbished must be in the title in the main page. But then again if it’s there nobody would bother to click on it!

iPhone 6 was the first iPhone I personally hated using. Agreed iPhone 6 was a major hit. It was the last phone that used 1gb Ram and the phone, especially Safari used to reload or hand constantly. This is why Apple used 2Gb Ram even in the SE. The front camera is also horrible. Strongly suggest people to purchase an SE instead of this.

If it was up to me, yes, I'd rather have an iPhone SE over this... the SE was, at one time on my carrier, as low as $159.99 for the 32GB variant, so it stinks to be in a position where they cannot be had for less than $249.99 as of the latest flash sale to hit the internets, but yeah, I agree that the SE is the better product for the money, if you have all of a couple hundred dollars to throw down.
